As Democrats line up to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar and come up with her excuses for her anti-Semitism, House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., tried to minimize her comments by arguing that she escaped violence in Somalia, so her experience was "more personal" than Jews who merely had parents survive the Holocaust.
The Hill reports, "Clyburn came to Omars defense Wednesday, lamenting that many of the media reports surrounding the recent controversy have omitted mentioning that Omar, who was born in Somalia, had to flee the country to escape violence and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the United States."
The article quotes Clyburn as saying, There are people who tell me, Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors. My parents did this. Its more personal with her ... Ive talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain.

The violence she allegedly escaped was being perpetrated by members of her own faith. She desires that faith to be dominant here in These United States.
Jews whose parents survived the Holocaust have first hand experience of violence brought down on them for being Jews.
So, like the race card throwing coward she is, she ran away rather than standing up for her country. What a worthless pig.
Wow. That is a sick statement. She has more at stake than someone who’s parents were gassed and put in an oven. What a sick ahole. To all Jewish Americans, if you ever vote for a democrat again, why?
And the Jews will still vote for Democrats no matter what. Today they walk right into the ovens.
And yes, invoke Godwin's Law if you wish, but what is on display right now should be disturbing to anyone who has two brain cells to rub together. I would argue that the Left is now becoming an existential threat.
Jews fled to the US after World War 2 and I do not remember any prominent member from that community saying the hateful stuff Omar has said.
James Clyburn is black, and as with all black Rats, he himself is very anti-Semitic. “It’s a black thang.”
Somalis are primitive “tribals” who do not belong in this country!!!!
And Ilhan Omar belongs in Guantanamo—NOT Congress!!!!
There is going to have to be a new resolution to condemn Clyburn.
Isn’t Clyburn head of the CBC?
They’re the Black KKK of Congress.
The LIBs/DIMs just love to hate Jewish people. Are the LIBs/DIMs becoming the new Nazis?
Because they hate Christians more.
I had no idea that the Jews were behind the troubles that plague Somalia. No wonder she hates them.
Now I understand, it was all those Jewish tribes and warlords in Somalia that has led to all this hate.
The religion of peace consistently delivers the opposite.
Muslim look at Jews as their enemy:(Prophet Muhammad Ordered To Behead & Kill All Jews Islam Not A Religion) a modern day version of Radical Islam. Islam also provides a 'chain migration' ....the complexity of Islam is like a rubik's cube....Muslims are NOT compatible to the US Constitution in any way....the Constitution is about freedom, liberty and constitutional law.
Electing an out sider like a Muslim to our government only provides, not another American but another Muslim pushing for Sharia law for their people in America.
“And the Jews will still vote for Democrats no matter what. Today they walk right into the ovens.”
There are Conservative groups that Jewish people support, join and advocate. Please don’t generalize - all Jews are not alike.
So? Using that defense, it would naturally follow that all of the Americans of African decent really have no call for reparations because many of them do no former great, great parents that were slaves. And those that do, this argument nullifies there complaint. They have no standing. Their complaints are moot based on his argument.

There, fixed the grammar errors.
I never said there weren't However the MAJORITY of the American Jewish population votes Democratic.
